NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Zero Offset Wide 5 Front Disc Brake Kit, 1968-69 Type 2 (Bus/Kombi), 498570
Zero Offset Wide 5 Front Disc Brake Kit, 1968-69 Type 2 (Bus/Kombi), 498570


 
Zero Offset Wide 5 Front Disc Brake Kit, 1968-69 Type 2 (Bus/Kombi), 498570 is a long awaited kit to upgrade the pitiful brakes on the early Type 2! The stock drum brakes are horrible even when in the best of shape, these give you massive stopping power, and of course disc brakes are self adjusting too! This kit lets you retain those Wide 5 wheels that you absolutely have to have (even if they are the stock rims), and triple your braking power with self adjusting disc brakes!

This kit also fits with the stock wheels!

THIS KIT DOES NOT WORK WITH EMPI 2.5" LOWERING SPINDLES PN: 22-2948!!

Your steering geometry and ride quality are unchanged by the installation of this kit, because you never even take the spindles off the car!

This kit is a product that a lot of folks have been hoping would be developed. This is not a "Race Quality" kit, since racers require the lightest parts possible! But if you are not a Weight Weenie, this kit may be just what you were looking for! All the disc brake kits that were economically priced in the Wide 5 pattern kick the wheels outboard, and cause tire/fender clearance issues. This kit retains the factory offset (hence the term "Zero Offset") to eliminate this issue!

This kit has made it possible to get all the superior braking advantages for your Volkswagen without the compromises. This kit is a 100% bolt-on systems that require no cutting, welding, drilling, Ghetto-rigging, or hack type engineering to make the system "work".

Offset problems have been eliminated by retaining the stock wheel offset geometry. The ease of installation of these kits is a bonus for the do-it-yourselfer and can be accomplished with standard tools in about 4 hours of work. AC Industries did their homework on this kit, much like VW did with the Beetle and Ghia design for decades, because this product looks very simple but is incredibly engineered so that it is easy to install and works very well.
